The Healthy Cities Project in China is one where mobile devices, mobile health mini-hubs, and sensors are the key way that patients, doctors, government, and enterprises can input, monitor, and access vital health statistics and other information in the cloud. Twenty million people already use this system. Healthy Cities is important for study, because it is a fully established infrastructure in those cities in China where it has been deployed. In the US, the Healthy Cities project is being studied by academics to see how it could be replicated in the US marketplace.
This video is part of our Health Technology series which explores emerging and important health technologies Health sensors — devices that can detect blood pressure and other bio readings — have advanced tremendously in the past few years. While many are familiar with fitness devices that monitor activities such as number of footsteps, new and very sophisticated
From advanced biosensors to healthy cities in China to robots and telemedicine, this is WPF’s video capture of the key trends and technologies at the 2015 Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas. This video was premiered at Georgia Tech/Academy of Medicine on Data Privacy Day, 2015.
An important and emerging area of facial recognition tech is “Passive Inspection Point” tech. This means the technology automatically captures consumers’ face prints as they move through public spaces like malls and on city streets. This video showcases current technology by Accenture that can automatically collect and enroll consumers’ facial biometrics from many angles.
This video is of an automatic border control entry point demo, along with examples of real-world installations of automated facial recognition-based entry systems. This technology collects facial recognition information from the people passing through a checkpoint to allow or disallow entry. This “ABC” type of technology is used at entrances to places such as commercial companies, border crossings, and airports.
